Progression and Career Opportunities

Many students go on to study politics at university. From there you might become a researcher, join local or national government or even start on the path to become a future Prime Minister!

Government and Politics has complemented my other subjects very well, especially Economics, as it provided context and relevant examples. It helped me gain a thorough understanding of modern day society and contemporary political issues, which is very useful beyond my academic studies.
